Enjoy These Oscar Movies, Now Delightfully Illustrated As Pie Charts

By: Julie Gerstein / February 24, 2013

Still not sure who you think is going to win Best Picture tonight? Why not try a strictly mathematical approach. That is, our buddy Jesse David Fox’s vigorously researched Oscar Movie Pie Charts, which detail all the uh, details of each Best Picture nominee. For instance, did you know that “Argo” is basically 25 percent about “that week in college you pretended to be from Canada,” and another five percent “the child-hugging end of ‘Mrs. Doubtfire'”? I’m going to go ahead and pretty much guarantee you had no idea that’s what “Argo” was about. For that and more incredible filmic revelations, please enjoy a few more pie charts after the jump. For the whole slate, click the link. And don’t forget to follow @TheFrisky@xoamelia@havethehabit and the hashtag #OscarBuzz for all livetweeting action tonight starting at 6 p.m. [NYMag.com]
